Vincent Veerbeek was, until recently, a research master’s student of American studies and History at Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Vincent spent his time as a student making the most of the interdisciplinary character of American studies, taking courses on topics ranging from linguistics and literature to history and politics. While spending a semester abroad at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he took a class in the Cherokee language and was inspired to specialize in Native American studies. After writing an undergraduate thesis on the Standing Rock movement, he turned his attention to the history of American off-reservation schools and spent time in California to do research on Sherman Institute. Passionate about writing and storytelling, Vincent hopes to do a PhD now that he has completed his master’s degree in order to continue pursuing his interests in both Indigenous studies and American studies at large.
